“Beautiful views of the ocean”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

As all the reviews state, the hotel has exceptional views from the rooms and the balconies. We stayed on the third floor, facing the Pismo pier, and were able to watch and listen to the waves all night. The rooms are very clean, spacious and comfortable. Although the breakfast is standard Best Western, overall this hotel is well worth the price. Try the next door restaurant, too.

We stayed at the Best Western Plus Shore Cliff Lodge located right on the cliffs above the ocean. It was a beautiful setting for our 3 day stay. The check in was very easy and the staff very efficient and friendly. I would highly recommend this facility to everyone. The location is central to Pismo and surrounding areas for golf.

Beautiful hotel on the edge of the ocean. Clean, roomy, great amenities (except for poor internet). Would stay anytime. The view was amazing from our balcony. The FREE breakfast was more than expected.

Generally all you needed, good location nearby restaurants to walk to or more with a short drive.

The standard you'd expect.

Receptionist on our arrival was obviously having a bad day, not particularly friendly or helpful. The one in the morning was much better.

Our room was very clean. The bed was extremely comfortable. Great location within walking distance to beach, restaurants and shops. Balcony had great view of the beach and pier. Would stay here again and again and again.

We arrived in LA from Australia and drove to Pismo Beach on the first leg of our west coast drive to San Francisco. A fuss free book-in by the friendly staff and what a wonderful room with a view out over the garden and ocean. We had the ocean view, king bed. Everything anyone would need is within close proximity and after dinner, fell into that terrific bed for a great nights sleep. There was no traffic noise. Let me tell you, nothing beats coffee on the balcony watching the seagulls against the glorious ocean vistas that are to be seen here. A huge American breakfast (these guys know how to lay it on).

Room Tip: Ample free parking but don't leave it too late if you want one outside your room

The view really is the highlight of this hotel but to be honest it is so beautiful that it made my stay a good one. The quality of the hotel itself is pretty average and it is in need of a refresh. But the bed was comfortable. A low light for me was the party that happened at 2am in the room next door when the bars in town must have shut. I ended up having to call reception who then sent someone to tell the occupants to be quiet and send those staying in other rooms - back to their rooms. Then just I was going back to sleep I was woken with another drunk person knocking on my door. He was staying in the room the other side of me and had gone for a late night swim in the pool and gotten the wrong room. So in another words a terrible nights sleep for me. And the breakfast was not really edible for me so I ate out. But as I said - amazing view and as I was on a one night stop over on my highway 1 road trip - was a good place to stay.
